Liverpool vs Napoli Prediction: Champions League Match on 27.11.2019
Liverpool and Napoli face off at Anfield on Wednesday with both sides knowing a win will guarantee their qualification for the knockout stage.
Liverpool suffered their only defeat of the season so far against Napoli in September, but have won their three games since.
Napoli though have drawn two games with Genk and Red Bull Salzburg, which has seen them fall behind Liverpool in the Group E standings.
Napoli have also been struggling in Serie A and sit seventh currently, while Liverpool are eight points clear at the top of the Premier League.
Liverpool could be without center-back Joel Matip, who is still being assessed day-to-day with a knee injury.
Nathaniel Clyne and Xherdan Shaqiri and also out, although Shaqiri has returned to training having not played since September.
Napoli are without long-term absentee Kevin Malcutt, who is still recovering from a cruciate ligament injury that should keep him out until the end of the season.
Meanwhile, Arkadiusz Milik and Faouzi Ghoulam are both doubts for this match having been out since early this month.
Liverpool vs Napoli Prediction
Things look quite different for both of these sides since Napoli beat Liverpool back in September.
Liverpool have now leapfrogged them in the table and will secure top spot with a win, while Napoli have struggled in both the Champions League and Serie A since.
However, Napoli still have plenty of talent at their disposal and can cause Liverpool some issues, while Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will be wary of balancing his squad between the Champions League and Premier League.
Liverpool do have far more strength in depth this season with the return from injury of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in midfield and Joe Gomez in defense.
Overall, Liverpool should be favorites given their outstanding form, but don’t rule out Napoli causing an upset.
